Taylored Expressions May Blast from the Past Hop!

Hello! I'm playing along in the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past hop today!

The theme for this month is "Make it Masculine" and we were supposed to leave the glitter and bling behind! Ummm..oops.


I really started out on the right track...I knew I wanted to use blues/turqouises and brown, but then the rest of the card just happened, lol! I'm still completely comfortable sending this card to a man though (even though he may be under 10 years old, haha!)

Make a Wish is one of my favorite TE stamps, I love the whimsical images in this stamp and this particular sentiment is fun to personalize with whatever colors used simply by coloring the letters in with Copics! I cut the balloons out with the Balloon dies and then embossed them with a Cuttlebug Folder and added some stickles to the polka dots. I stamped the banner and then added some twine bows. I hope you can hop along with us today, because Taylor will be drawing one random hopper to receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set of your choice and we'll also be choosing another creation to be featured in an upcoming TE newsletter. 

Here is a list of blogs with projects up! Your next stop is the sweet Crafty Math Chick! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
